Idaho Think Tank Leaders Gets Ticket, Wants Changes to Excessive Speed

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A conservative Idaho think tank’s leader upset at his $155 speeding ticket is calling for the Legislature to hold hearings on the state’s laws governing driving too fast.

Wayne Hoffman of the Idaho Freedom Foundation doesn’t like the rules governing excessive speeding, which he says were set by the courts. He thinks the Legislature should take up the matter. Hoffman was caught recently driving 73 miles per hour on a northern Idaho road where the limit is 55 miles per hour.

Hoffman thinks the 1988 Legislature abandoned its constitutional role by leaving matters including the definition of excessive speeding up to the Idaho Supreme Court. In a guest editorial, Hoffman says he’ll cut something out of his budget to pay the fine, but it won’t be food for his kids.
